  1. praxisproject - I cackled when I saw your comment above. We do the exact same thing at our local Woolworths with coconut cream too! Bec PM - welcome to a wonderful club! Good luck with your Whole30 and touch base if you need any support. If you'd like any tea recommendations, feel free to PM me. I work for a Tasmanian tea company, and there are lots of options if you'd like something that's not water but still compliant.
  2. We have a new juice bar in Hobart that does nut milks too! Australia is getting cool you guys!
  3. Maybe genuinely, without any snark, just curiosity, ask "How would you know?" or "Do you honestly think I am less healthy now than a year ago?" I doubt she'd be able to answer that.
  4. I'd go back to Vanuatu. I went there for a holiday a few years ago and it was amazing! The food is compliant, that's just how the locals roll. The market in Port Vila is awesome, you could get all your food needs there easy. And getting a bit thirsty? Sweet talk a local into grabbing you a coconut from the tree you're standing under. Plus, its beach/tropical paradise, so you can swim and relax, and its easy to find lots of outdoor activities especially around Port Vila. And the volcanoes on other islands are a bit of fun too! My favourite thing would have to be the locals. Such a relaxed care free attitude, we could all learn from them. Its like Vanuatu was made for Whole30-ers...
  5. "I could never do that" is another one. But I've also heard that when I tell people I have to give myself injections on occasions to manage my bleeding disorder. I just say "of course you could, if your health depended on it. If I don't do this I'm going to end up with a very painful injury that will take a good while to clot and a really long time to heal. I'll be at increased risk of infection to the wound because it takes longer to heal over. If I don't do it myself, the other option is sitting around in the ER for hours waiting for someone to do it for me, and that is again putting me a higher risk of infection, and with the wound being on my (insert limb here), those plastic chairs really don't help with the pain". And everyone I've had that discussion with admits they would in fact suck it up and do it themselves. W30 is no different. We just do what we have to to be healthy.
  6. So many of these are familiar! I've had quite a few people insist there's not sugar in whatever they've prepared and in fact they've used store bought sauce for flavour, or milk as a binding ingredient. Major fail. Luckily for me (? probably just a perspective thing...) I'm not willing to put my health at risk to make someone feel better - family, friend, employer, whatever. Don't care. You're not the one who has to deal with the bloating and discomfort and potential rectal bleeds for a week after.
  7. Cool, they actually have stockist near me, might have to have a look next time I'm in Kingston.
  8. So this is a bit old, but on Facebook look for Broth of Life. Its a very small company from northern Tas that use local (grass fed of course, can't get anything else in northern Tassie!) meat and veggies for their broth, then they dehydrate it. So you just dissolve in hot water and drink (or put it in your soup pot). It tastes pretty good too!
